Stainless steel railings can be some of the sleekest, strongest railings to install. However, like any other type of railing, they’re less effective and less attractive when damaged. If you need to repair damaged stainless steel railings, Pro Weld can help you. Here’s how to get started.

Assess the Damage

The first step to repairing anything, stainless steel railings included, is assessing the damage to determine what kind of work they need to be fixed. If your stainless steel railings are damaged by rust, you may be able to fix the problem yourself. However, damage involving a break in the metal is best handled by a professional – like those at Pro Weld.
